From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; m18) Gecko/20001105 BuildID: 2000110520 Frames don't display in quirks mode when some displayable element is shown in the frameset. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: If you are registered with etour: 1. enter your e-mail address and press button "start touring" 2. a frameset loads with a navigation at the buttom and a random page at the top... Actual Results: ... but nothing except the title is shown Expected Results: display frames correctly This happens only in nav quirks mode. if you set an explicit DTD, everything shows ok. (see testcases)
Comments on the testcases: The difference between the first and the second testcase is that the first has no doctype declaration (and therefore uses quirks mode) whereas the second one has a transitional doctype declaration. Even if we have an input type="hidden", I call it a displayable element, because if you replace the type with text or whatever, we have the same situation. You could as well add anything else there. If you remove the input field and keep only the form start and end tags, the problem disappears.
CC'ing Harish - this seems like it might be happening in the parser. Shouldn't this testcase be using <NOFRAMES> ?
Pollmann, the only difference that I see between the working and non working testcases is the DOCTYPE. And parser does not do anything different based on DOCTYPE. In other words it's the same DTD ( CNavDTD ) that would get triggered for both testcases. IMO, this is a layout issue ( since the *layout* mode changes with DOCTYPE ). But, will anyway take a look into it to see if parser is involoved at all ;-)
Doh, I meant to attach a dump of the doctype model that I got when looking at this page - there wasn't a frameset because a <FORM><INPUT></FORM> appeared before the <FRAMESET> and that opened up a <BODY>.
